Wouldn't it be nice if the Cooling Fan actually Functioned Properly ??

Summary: Very first power supply unit I ever buy and the cooling fan does not spin or come on ever, just my luck. I won't ever purchase another Cooler Master product at any time. I highly recommend to plug it in first and confirm whether or not the fan operates, which I failed to do ( see how to install a new power supply for dummies )and 4 months after I installed it my PC kept power crashing while playing Elder Scrolls V on ultra settings, due to the Cooler Master brand 450 w...
Summary: Very nice cool master power supply, cables are sturdy and the correct ones are coated in the mesh to tie them together didn't have to cut any mesh away like you have to on so many because they stupidly meshed everything. This is very well made.
Summary: The psu works well and met my needs. Has plenty of connects so you probably won't need an adapter unlike my previous psu if you want to use a molex connectors. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that it was making a noise like the fan in the psu is hitting something. So ya I'm really annoyed by this so it loses two stars. I would have gave it two but I found a way to make it not make the sound. I have my psu outside the case and have it upside down.
Summary: I have bought 4 of these for custom computer builds and have had no issues with them at all. It's not modular, but it does the job and has not failed yet. First one I bought was around a year ago, so we will see how they stand the test of time.
These power supplies are quiet efficient and reliable

Summary: There are very few 450 W power supplies that earn an 80 Plus Bronze rating. These supplies are extraordinarily quiet, they are reliable, have a single 12 Volt Rail that delivers 35 amps and I found that it works dependably even when running an Nvidia GTS 450 Video Card and a 6 core AMD Phenom II 1045T processor.
